Carol Ann takes you on a time travel journey to other planets and earth. There is space travel, paranormal and the usual special love between to very special people, "Nicole and Richard". I love how she has Aleese and Andrew remember parts of the other books, but don't know why they do. Andrew keeps saying that he has loved Aleese from the beginning of time and it sure looks like it.
Andrew is just a farm boy on the planet Nord. Nobody special, not the smartest of the bunch and definitely not the bravest. One day he see's this most beautiful girl in the whole world and falls in love at first sight, without even meeting her. He followed her and tried to get close, but the guards wouldn't let him. He would dream of her for the rest of his life.
Aleese, Lady Aleese is being raised by Lord Havenhill and his family. It's time for her to take a mate and he wants his son Grant to be the one. Aleese has different ideas and neither Havenhill men are happy with that. Aleese knows her mate is at Blakeley and after going to all the different "towns", she hasn't found the right mate yet. Being pushed for time, she has to find him her or be forced to marry Grant.
Aleese and Andrew Wed and Grant keeps steeling her and placing her on different planets. Andrew goes out searching for her every time. They are traveling be transport with a bracelet. He finds her on a rock planet and other strange places. Grant even sent them to earth to be low scumbag workers. It backfired to some degree.
I love how Carol Ann started each new place with the location of where they are so you don't get confused. As much jumping around Aleese and Andrew did, you really need that to keep track of where you were.
There is so much I could tell you about this book, but I feel it would be giving away all the good parts and there are a lot of them. This book isn't a slow pace boring love story, No it's another part of Nicole and Richard as Aleese and Andrew. The pure love and devotion is still there and the adventure just turned out better. I really hope Carol Ann has more of Nicole and Richard coming in the future, this is a fun read and I love her style of writing.
No, these books are not "romance novels" There's no naked men, with nice abs, or page after page of sex scenes, these books weave tales of true romance, of love that is stronger then time. They embrace that love really means and don't cheapen it!
This story has all the wonderful elements of fantasy and sci-fi that Carol weaves into her classic love story. The character meet on their futuristic planet and fall in love dispite their classes, and then are horrible seperated by a jealous man. They each go through their own struggles, and fight for their love. It's heartbreaking and wonderful, and draws you in and keeps you reading. You need to know what happens in this cycle of the Time After Time series because you won't regret it!
Romance, of course!
It follows Andrew, a simple farm boy and Lady Aleese as they marry, to much protest by high end society. There is a jealous man with a thing for kidnapping who will stop at nothing to separate the two. Throughout the course of the book, the characters are taken and dumped in different societies to keep them apart; including barbaric planets, slave ships and modern day Chicago. Before I talk about Lord of Blakely, let me tell you a bit about the Time After Time series.
I came across this series by Carol Ann Kauffman and thought it had a pretty interesting concept. It follows two people who are undoubtedly soulmates through their different lives together but the interesting part is that each book is set in a different place and time, under different circumstances and you could nearly call them different genres. Although the books technically have an order, they do not necessarily follow on from one another so they don’t need to be read from first to last. I think Lord of Blakely is number 4 or so but I picked it because I thought it sounded cool.
Now despite the crazy story, this book is romantic. Although I’m not experienced in the genre, I don’t imagine that it would be easy to make everything sound so highly dramatic and magical without sounding over the top but the author manages it well. The characters do a lot of growing and changing just throughout this one book but the way it is done, you can believe it. Even the way the characters speak is so intense and yet, it sounds natural. The two are soulmates and you feel it. For me, that’s the best thing about this book.
A lot happens throughout the plot of this book to the poor couple that can’t seem to get any time together without someone coming along and ruining it. I think I would have liked to see things slow down a little more in between events to get used to the pair in their strange new environments. Also, I did get a little confused about the timing of what was happening at the beginning of the book – I think it might help if you consider “chapter one” to be a prologue instead. Other than that though, there’s a lot going on and it certainly doesn’t get boring.
The writing is very easy to read but there are a few grammatical issues and typos. They aren’t common enough to be a huge problem but you come across them every now and then. The author also neglects to use tags (he said, she said) sometimes and it can get confusing. A few times, I had to go back and count to work out who was saying what. Although it’s not bad by any means, the writing is the one thing that, if improved, could improve this book a lot.
I really like the concept of the Time After Time series and think it’s a really cool way to get to write different stories and explore different settings. At the same time, it all fits in together and follows the one theme. I’d definitly like to read more of the books to see how similar or different the characters are (remember they are the same characters reincarnated) and luckily the books are so diverse that you can just pick the one that sounds most interesting to you. Like I said before, I don’t often read romance but a book about alien wars and time travel that just so happens to be one, well that got my attention. The other books in the series are so diverse that I’m sure most people could find one that appeals to them. If you do happen to be a big a fan of romance, minus the smut, I’d recommend reading all of them
